September 2014 was a transformative time for climate action and we were part of it! Congrégation de Notre-Dame Sisters and staff were on the ground in New York City and more sisters and associates participated in sister marches across Canada. We succeeded in bringing what was then seen as a ‘special interest’ issue that only a few should be concerned with, to becoming a widespread movement that involves everyone and touches every part of our lives. In follow-up to this, the Encyclical Laudato Si has provided a road map for the world with the concept of Integral Ecology. It seems that since then our challenges have been increasing. The power and enthusiasm of mass mobilization is needed more than ever. Plans are underway for what is now being called the People’s Climate Movement. This time centre stage on April 29 will be Washington DC instead of New York. The focus is action on climate change that will create jobs, healthier communities, and a better future. A diverse coalition of groups has come together – faith, environmental, labour, student, environmental and racial justice, and more. Hundreds of sister marches are being planned across the United States. So far there are Canadian marches being planned in Tofino, Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Prince Albert, Regina, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Bancroft Toronto, and Ottawa. Stay tuned to hear about an event near you, if you are not close to one of these locations. We invite you to be part of this important movement through participating in a local march, involving your local church and through prayer. For more information see https://peoplesclimate.org/
We are dedicated to our mission of liberating education
through prayer, work and community.
We follow Jesus, the Light
of the world.
